Quote # 50 by Edgar Winter

“Music is very spiritual, it has the power to bring people together.”


– Edgar Winter



Edgar (Holland) Winter (born December 28, 1946 in Beaumont, Texas) is an American musician/singer and younger brother to blues guitarist and singer Johnny Winter. Edgar Winter is famous for being a multi-instrumentalist and he is a highly skilled keyboardist, saxophonist and percussionist. Both he and his brother Johnny have albinism.


Below are some examples of songs there you can see Edgar Winter both as keyboard player, saxophone player, drummer and singer in different constellations. I have also put in some videos with Johnny Winter and Ronnie Montrose as well.
